Gimpy did you get a chance to check out the tutorials that Deadlock made for my group so I posted in the 507th as well?
It may help you with your map making. Just make sure you use nodraw on all your building textures and use the toggle texture tool to paint one side. It's helped my compiling time immensely. :)
I was making a map 5 months ago call the twin tower dedicated to 911 but was just learning the ropes then and I messed up royally and set it aside for other maps. The buildings were identical of course and had like 27 huge floors. it was a nightmare for me until I found short cuts in building. :)
Good luck.

Let me get this straight, you want to have the Axis spawn inside the fortress, and have the Allies assault it by blowing open holes in the walls? Sounds pretty sweet.

yeah...pretty much...

i don't think all of the fortress will be playable because that's about the size of a warehouse....

maybe 1st floor, 3rd and top floor...

anybody got a prefab for stairs??

Keeping in line with blowing stuff up to get into the fortress, maybe you want to have some of the objectives be detonation style... i.e. destroying an ammunition dump, or an AA battery, something like that?

maybe blowing a door to actually get in, cause you don't want to blow up the thing your capturing completely....

it's coming along though.... made the entrance way with a mg nest by the door (german bunkers had this but ill add cover for a us sniper to kill the mg) the living quarters, lots of stairs and a command center

i still gotta work out the roof exits and flak guns

any other room suggestions???

by the way, how do you make ambient sounds through the map??

09-11-2007, 09:12 PM
You use the entity ambient_generic and just hit browse in the ambient_generic entity and then type in the filter like battle, bird, fire, etc. and then pick which one you want to listen to. And make sure it has a good range. Also click on the flag and set it, for instance if it's a flag you want to just have it play only when you are nearby, if it's the wind of course you want to check play everywhere. :)
